gist, Muli Musyoka, arrived in T&T last
week for a whirlwind trip of activity
with the Caribbean School of Cosme-
tology (CSOC). Musyoka is an IAT (In-
ternational Association of
Trichologists) holistic hair specialist,
who focuses on hair and scalp health.
This was Musyoka's first visit to the
Caribbean region, and his presence has
generated a definitive buzz of excite-
ment in the cosmetology community. As
the first Kenyan to be certified as a tri-
chologist in East and Central Africa, Muli
has made great strides in the interna-
tional hair community. This hair connois-
seur has conducted world-class forums
and symposiums in Dubai, Australia,
South Africa, USA and several parts of
the African continent. Currently, he runs
a hair restoration clinic in Nairobi, and is
the first hair specialist to introduce hair
transplant in Kenya.
Musyoka was invited to visit T&T by a
new regional academic institution of
higher learning, the CSOC. Speaking on
Musyoka's visit at the welcome recep-
tion, founder of CSOC, Essenese Sam-
bury, was in high praises for the
Kenyan-born hair guru. "Muli is well re-
spected in his field of endeavour, and is
adored and revered in Africa and
throughout the world. His years of expe-
rience in the trichology field and his per-
sonable nature have given him a
professional edge, and his level of ex-

with Musyoka will create a platform for
enlightenment and education for the
professionals and citizens of T&T as it

with making the initial connection with
Musyoka. "Browne has had an illustri-
ous career, working on such Hollywood
Blockbuster Productions as "Bad Boys"
and sitting on advisory boards for some
of the most well-known cosmetology in-
stitutions in the world. As our pro-

His one-day Hair Loss Certification
Course, took place on Monday, and was
designed specifically for salon profes-

knowledge on how to treat with hair
loss among their clients. Those in atten-
dance got a taste of the trichology
courses that the CSOC will have to offer,
when they open their doors in East
Trinidad in October 2015.
During his cocktail event, a jovial
Musyoka enthusiastically stated that
this "(...) would definitely not be his last
trip to T&T."
Reaffirming his long-term commit-
ment to the CSOC Team, Musyoka an-
nounced his intent to visit in the coming
months with a team of experts, to con-
tinue spreading the world on the impor-
tance of hair and scalp health. Together
with the CSOC, Muli also plans to open
his first Hair Hub Clinic in Trinidad --- the
first of its kind outside the African Con-
tinent --- which will include collabora-
tions with senior and
such as Germaine Williams.
CSOC will also be partnering with the
Government of Guadeloupe on an ex-

cial plans during their enrolment at this
institution for higher learning.
